Euglena and BAD Water
Euglena has become a health hazard in different areas.
And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood
What is it?
Euglena is a genus of unicellular flagellate protists. It is the best known and most widely studied member of the phylum Euglenophyta, a diverse group containing some 44 genera and at least 800 species. Species of Euglena are found in fresh and salt waters.
Currently the euglena has become a danger to Ohio lakes and rivers, as well as to southeast Michigan.
The Russian Sea of Azov is the shallowest sea in the world with the depth varying between 0.9 metres (2 feet) and 14 metres (46 ft). The sea is 360 kilometres (220 miles) long and 180 kilometres (110 miles) wide and has an area of 39,000 square kilometres (15,000 sq miles) which makes it is the smallest sea within the countries of the former Soviet Union.
Artificial reduction of river flow (construction of dams), over-fishing and water-intense large-scale cultivation of cotton, caused increasing levels of pollution.
Fish hauls have rapidly decreased and in particular anchovy fisheries have collapsed.
The sea is characterized by high concentrations of organic matter and long blooming periods.. Green algae are mostly responsible for the greenish colour of the sea in the satellite images.
Pond from Oklahoma
There have been algal blooms in other states as well in the past, example North Carolina:
also other countries ( examples):
Update in Ohio:
Plants can get rid of the organism, but not its toxin.
Above is a sample of Lake Erie water near the City of Toledo water intake crib. More tests are needed to ensure that toxins are out of Toledo’s water supply, the mayor said Sunday, instructing the 400,000 people in the region to avoid drinking tap water. (AP Photo/Haraz N. Ghanbari)
The harmful toxin found in Lake Erie that caused a water crisis in Ohio’s fourth-largest city this weekend has raised concerns nationally. That’s because no states require testing for such toxins, which are caused by algal blooms. And there are no federal or state standards for acceptable levels of the toxins, even though they can be lethal.
In Toledo, Ohio, where voluntary tests at a water treatment plant found elevated levels of the toxin microcystin, which is produced by blue-green algae, the city is urging residents and the several hundred thousand people served by its water utility not to drink tap water, even if they boil it.
Exposure to high levels of microcystin can cause abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, liver inflammation, pneumonia and other health problems, some of which are life-threatening. Restaurants have closed, and there are shortages of bottled water as far as 100 miles away.
Steve: We just received news of Declared Emergency for Toledo area and
Southeastern Michigan. Gov Kasich declared a State of Emergency and is
sending Guard and Water as far away as Akron.
We heard stories of
traveling 1-2 hours into Michigan to find water as the panic continues.
Toledo Mayor Collins said it could be 10-12 hours or longer until they have
"some water" to major areas.
WTOL TV just caught someone in a parking lot
selling a case of water for $20 so gouging has started already and the
stores are now empty of water as people are grabbing all liquids.
We live near Toledo and the list of cities around the area putting "NO
WATER USE" continues to grow…now Monroe, Michigan is included in the ban.
We have reports that Sam’s and Costco are limiting sales and nearly out.
Same for Wal-Mart, Meijer’s, Kroger’s and Aldi’s. People are volunteering
to fill jugs 20-3o miles out…have water will fill posted on FB. We live
on a farm and offering the same to those that need water.
It may be that this water crisis spreads.
Wherever you live, store up bottled water…..at least a 90 day supply.
I had given this warning several years ago, and this has been an ongoing warning, but did not know the details:
There is also the Ebola Virus which is in the USA without a solution.
Prepare, or face what comes unprepared.
Food for thought:
Water coming from a city water treatment plant is not going to look like the picture here….green goo in a glass….after all the filters used.
This organism entered the water line AFTER the city treatment plant….which suggests this was done intentionally to pollute the water.
